of understanding that too many have there in d.c., not understanding that obama's big government job killing policies are the antithesis of what our country needs to get back on the right track. our country was built on a strong foundation of reward for work ethic and development of our natural resources. here we've gone the opposite direction unobama with both those cornerstones. we are where we are now, moody's telling us -- telling us or aaa rate something under review because we don't have a plan to get us back on that solid footing. >> sean: we have to look at political reality and we've got to look at reality in terms of what we can get done now with where we are. the republicans have only one piece of congress, the house. the senate, harry reid runs that, the president runs the white house. what would be acceptable? you are a conservative, well-known in the tea party, i'm a registered conservative. i would refer cut, cap and balance. but cut now not 12 years down the road if you can't get that through, the country can't default, that's a reality you agree with, is that correct? >> tru
